48. characterizing our Prez.... 'kind of a dick' doesn't display a nice reporterly attitude....

....and no matter how often a reporter may think or feel it, they should never refer to a president as a pussy, jagoff, fuckwad, dickpull, scumbag, fucker, chicken-fucker, mother-fucker, cum-sucker, son-of-a-bitch, snotball or Republican....unless they're referring to the chimp....
